Nadir Divan-Begi Madrasah

In many cultures, there is a perception that we should not mix trade and religious affairs, but the history of this madrasa indicates that some blending may benefit. Madrasah of Nadir Divanbegi, which is part of the Bukhara Lyabi-haus complex, was named in honor of a noble man, who had initiated the construction- vizier Nadir.


He was a vizier at the court of one of the great rulers of the time (1611-1642 year) Imamkuli Khan. Historical artifacts helped scientists to conclude that the period of his reign was distinguished by stability and well-being. At that time, more attention was paid not to military affairs but to the development of the city and its infrastructure.


According to the initial decision of Nadir, the builders were to build just a khanaka where Sufis could take a rest and be given to philosophical thinking, but eventually, opposite the khanaka there appeared a caravanserai. During the opening ceremony the supreme ruler said it was wrong to have a caravanserai next to a sacred place. In view of this, he ordered to immediately transform the newly opened caravanserai into a madrasah..


The madrasah was built in the classic Muslim architectural traditions, but it did not prevent the architects from making a few innovations. For example, when decorating the facade of the madrasa drawings of various living creatures were actively used, which went beyond the prevailing ideas of that time. On the central portal of the madrasah architects placed the birds of happiness.
